I filed and paid for extension of Visa with I-539 form before my original visa expired on May 6th 2020. I have not heard back from UCIS, should I worry? I dont want to travel while tests and vaccines are required, therefore prefer to stay as long as I can.
It says on UCIS homepage https://www.uscis.gov/about-us/uscis-response-to-covid-19 If You File in a Timely Manner. Nonimmigrants generally do not accrue unlawful presence while the timely-filed, non-frivolous EOS/COS application is pending. Where applicable, employment authorization with the same employer, subject to the same terms and conditions of the prior approval, is automatically extended for up to 240 days after I-94 expiration when an extension of stay request is filed on time.
Thank you so much for this answer! What does it mean: your visa would not be voided. What happens when a visa is voided? I have to get a new visa anyway each time I come, so is that a problem that the visa is voided?
